The Aussie Punk’s 1995 debut album to be repressed on brand new vinyl colours designed by Austrian visual artist Stefan Beham.

If you think of Australian punk rock, you will not be able to avoid the name Frenzal Rhomb. They formed in 1993 in Sydney and after touring Australia with bands like The Offspring, Bad Religion, and Blink-182 they headed into the studio and recorded their debut album Coughing Up A Storm.

The LP was released in March 1995 on Shock Record label’s sub-label Shagpile Records. Later in the year after supporting NOFX the band was signed by Fat Mike‘s Fat Wreck Chords.

Hyped by Fat Mike Frenzal Rhomb quickly became one of the biggest independent Australian punk bands and they embarked on a world tour taking in countries like The States, The UK, Japan, South Africa and Israel.
